Diana is known for her sincerity, warmth and reassuring attention to detail and her naturally calm and dignified manner.

She has a real flair for helping people find exactly the right words, music and readings, while also helping you find your own special words to add to the unique script.

Your ceremony sets the tone for the rest of your day. How it is designed, planned and conducted will be the talk and envy of your guests for many years to come!

Diana gives you the freedom to move from the traditional restrictions imposed on licensed venues. She will make your dreams come true, finding exactly the right words and music to create your perfect, personal ceremony – wherever and whenever you want! She conducts ceremonies at any time to suit her clients - so it really is possible to have your celebration at sunrise, sunset or even under a moonlit, starry sky!

Whatever the setting, the mood of the celebration is dictated by you. Whether you’ve dreamed of a ceremony in a garden or a castle, on a beach or a boat, in a woodland setting at dawn, or a hot air balloon at dusk - or just a simple, intimate blessing at home, with romantic touches such as the release of doves or butterflies, Diana can help.

The ceremony can be as dignified and serious as the most traditional of church weddings. It can include spiritual or scriptural readings, or the religious elements can be replaced by words and music which have real meaning to you and your partner - or the whole ceremony can be designed to be delightfully informal!

"The comments and response to our ceremony have been overwhelming. Grown men were crying literally, so touched by the words. I want everyone possible to know how perfect you made my day. "
